with precision what the effect of advertising is. and the person who bought george w. bush's ads in 2000 always used to say with a big smile on his face that it was the most efficient ad buy in history in florida. he didn't waste a single dollar on florida. now, obviously, with a big smile on his face and joking. what he meant was a little too close for comfort for the bush people, but if you're looking at it as a complete economic efficiency, they didn't waste any money in florida because they won by 530 votes, whatever it was. anything they would have spent more than that would be a waste. but they, obviously, don't think like that. they're obviously not trying to get efficiency in that particular way. but advertising very, very much matters at the margin. i mean, we look at the 2000 election, phenomenally close. the 2004 election, also, phenomenally close. 70,000 votes go the other way in ohio, and we're talking about president john kerry. 2002, big republican victory taking back the u.s. senate, very narrow victories in minnesota and missouri. 2006, 2008, 2010, swing elections, and advertis
for george w. bush. and i said, why? he said, i trust him. now, a month later when americans cast their vote, i realized what had happened, which is that a lot of people were voting based on that. even though it may not have seemed obvious to us what their interests were, these people were thinking about this in a more fundamental way. and it reminded me that when you go and you talk to voters, all they want to know is you're going to speak to them and you're going to speak for them, and whoever wins this election is going to be the one that makes that case the best. we occasionally onthe "newshour" go out around the country and do spotlight cities where we go to towns and we sit people down and ask them to talk to each other. you know, we live in a world of silo politics where people watch one cable network or the other, and they only listen to people they already agree with. we get them all in one room. and in this case we were in the middle of the health care debate, and we were in tampa, florida, and there were people arguing with each other about what their meaning and understanding of
h.w. bush's administration. he's now a columnist for the fiscal times and author of the book, "the benefit and the burden." bruce, we heard today in some terms, anyway, from both president obama and mitt romney about the coming fiscal cliff and sequester, a bunch of different terms being used for this. let's listen to what the president said about it. >> those big across-the-board cuts, including defense that congress said would occur next year if they couldn't reach a deal to reduce the deficit. there are a number of republicans in congress who don't want you to know that most of them voted for these cuts. now they're trying to wriggle out of what they agreed to do. >> bruce, the republicans are getting very nervous about some of this and especially, according to your reporting, the defense cuts. >> that's right. as you know, a big part of the sequester or the fiscal cliff, rather, is a $1.2 trillion spending cut, 600 on the defense side, 600 on the domestic side. and the republicans are very panic about the 600 on the defense side. dick cheney has been telling them, oh, you can't

he is. >> we heard this about george h.w. bush, his move telling him stop talking about himself and he still drives his wife crazy because he won't talk about himself enough. is it fair to say romney is a bit the same way? >> i think it's very fair to say it's the same way. it a political problem because we don't know, to go back to a topic we had earlier, how much has the obama campaign defined romney successfully in a negative way. one of the things that defines you to be defined in a negative way is if you can't talk about yourself in a positive way. he's a blank canvas to people. not many americans know him. instead of filling in that picture for the electorate, he's allowed to some extent have the obama campaign do it for him in a way that is not favorable to him. >> rick haass, going overseas, what should he avoid and what should he accomplish? >> he wants to keep the focus on the economy. that's the main theme of the campaign. this is a little off message. it's always tricky for someone to go overseas and talk about the president's foreign policy. it looks a little disloy
know, be more friendly and be more open-minded and be less tough as many accused president george w. bush of being, ralph? >> well, you know, i have to go back to obama's speech yesterday and really compare it. it was part low comedy where you had president obama, who is not the most macho guy, telling a vfw audience i've got your back, i've got your six. but the real thought yesterday to contrast it with governor romney's, proud of america speech today, was when obama made that claim that we've never, for the first time ever our veterans are our priority. megyn, for a century 1/2, this country, under republicans and democrats has made our veterans a priority. we have pioneered the world in caring for veterans. not always perfectly but, look, the bush ad administration, however imperfect it may have been, revolutionized military medical care, expanded the va, put general shinseki in charge. obama has never found a better man. after world war ii our g.i. bill revolutionized the american work force and the economy. after our civil war, the pension bureau, at a time when no other count

a fair share. we will find out. this is not a new story. in 2001, when president george w. bush decided to spend a large portion of the surpluses he inherited from president clinton to cut tax rates across the board, many democrats opposed it because the tax cuts were unfairly waited towards the highest-income americans. as a result of this opposition, republicans were forced to set the tax cuts to expire at the end of 2010. as 2010 drew to a close, president obama and many democrats in congress, including myself, supported extending the tax cuts for middle-class families but letting the lower rates on income above $200,000 for an individual and $250,000 for a family revert to the clinton-era levels, as was scheduled. senate republicans filibustered that effort, refusing to allow the middle class tax cut without a tax cut for america's wealthiest. not wanting tax rates to go up on middle-class families still struggling during the economy. the president and senate democrats reluctantly agreed to extend all of the tax cuts through this year. which brings us to now. once again these tax ra
